Displaying the change history (command list)

Open the command list using View | Command list (see Opening the command list).

Use the Command list window to display any changes made to an object and to either undo or redo them.

Executed commands are indicated with the icon. This icon is not shown for commands that were undone.

The use of wizards allows numerous commands to be automatically implemented, which in the command list are displayed as composite commands and the individual commands are shown at a second level. You can only undo the composite commands.

The following table gives an overview of the various features available in the Command list window.
